August 9th , 'On Monday, Miss Newcomb, Jane, & I took up our residence at Boronggoop. We found Armstrong & Owens digging the garden, which is fenced. This is Thursday night, & every thing is now nearly arranged in the house; we have also got a number of garden & flower seeds put in the ground.
Miss Newcomb, who is my partner, I hope for life, is the best & most clever person I have ever met with; there seems to be magic in her touch, every thing she does is done so well & so quickly. Our arrangement for the day is as follows: rise at 7 O'clock, break fast at 8 (previously to which we have prayers, at which Miss N. presides, & prays extempore very beautifully), dinner at 2 (& excellent dinners we have, as Vere, Armstrong's wife, turns out to be a good cook), at 1/2 past 6 tea, prayers at 8, & to bed at 10. 
Saturday, 14th
